Carbon Cut Wire & Cast Shot
Carbon Cut Wire is an excellent choice for peening applications when fracturing and splitting of cast steel shot is a concern. Carbon cut wire does not fracture or split as cast products do, rather it delaminates as it wears. This allows it to maintain its spherical shape. The wire is cut to the same length as its diameter producing a solid, durable piece of shot. It produces very bright surfaces, No hollow, splits or twins, maintains size and shape longer than cast abrasives and creates less dust than cast products.
Carbon Steel Cut Wire used by National Peening and Technical Metal Finishing meets the requirements of AMS 2431/3
Cast Steel Shot is used to impart compressive stress to torque or load bearing metal parts, such as jet engine turbine blades, medical implants, automotive springs, or equipment crankshafts. Steel shot is the most common media use for shot peening.
